Hi, have a site where I set up a news category, then under that I have different regions where editors in those regions can add news stories. I'm trying to figure out how to allow each editor to only add/edit stories in their region, and not allow editors from other regions to edit them. example: News (template:news-category) Washington County (template:news-region) My First News Story for Washington County by Editor 1 (template:news-article) Jefferson County (template:news-region) A News Story by the jefferson county editor (template:news-article) Taylor County (template:news-region) A news story by a Taylor county editor (template:news-article) I really don't want to create 3 different news-region templates along with 3 different news-article variations, and 3 different types of Editor roles. Is there a way / module that will let me say, "jane which is an editor can only add and edit to Washington County" and "bill which is an editor can only add or edit to Taylor County", etc? Also, it would be nice to allow the "home office" editor to add/delete/modify contents created by the other editors, a "Super Editor" if you will. Thanks mucho!
Is there a way to output a nicely formatted author name using just the page's author without creating an additional author field attached to a template? At the moment I'm doing: $author = $page->createdUser; echo $author->name; but that just outputs admin when I'd like it to output Site Admin. But usernames can't contain spaces and there's no screen name field. So do I need to create a field for the news template for author? Or is there some other workaround?
How can I add fields to the user page in the PW Admin? I'd like to add a field for a user's full name. The blog profile created by Ryan uses a similar field named "Display name (first and last name)," but I can't figure out how that field is added to the page. I've combed through the forum and I can't find the answer to my question. Is this something done through the PW Admin or through a script?
